3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750ml). Aged roughly 1 year piror to tasting. Poured fizzy burnt copper with a tiny, frothy, off-white head which was fully diminishing. A woody aroma with toffee malts, burnt sugar, figs, preserved plums, toffee apple sweets and hints of varnish. Flavor was a tangy acidic bitterness with sweet bready malts, strong notes of lemon citrus, zesty oranges, dry pears, crisp apples, caramelized figs and some good woody notes. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, thick texture and a decent length finish.
An earthy floral aroma with toasted malts and light notes of dark fruits, amber colour with a light rocky off white head, good lacing, sweet toffee flavour along with dark fruits and light spice, medium body, warming, this is good! RoJo28 (65) - - JUN 16, 2017
The description on this got us all excited for a strong Belgian style ale. This may of got us off in direction. We prepared ourselves for Parmesan, but we got Gouda. Prepared for grapefruit but got pomelo. It's not a bad thing though, with a bottle this size subtlety is key.

750ml bottle poured (in several tranches) into a wine tasting glass.
First of this style for me - so rating without comparison. Too dark to be copper - but along those hues far towards brown on the colour scale. Burnished copper? Off white head. Depending upon temperature - all malt/ toffee, once warming up a hint of bread, bannana and at the back some current/dark fruits - very, very subtle.

Bottle- pours brown with a small off white head. Aroma is oaky, bit of funk and sweet malt. Taste is sweet up front then developing into a tart dry finish.

On tap at Bridge Road, pours a dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted oak upfront, with and earthiness, and rustic notes. Flavour is earthy, with lots of toasted oak, and even a touch of fruitiness. Really nice stuff. Quite authentic for the style. Very enjoyable. Kurtos (204) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2015

Bottle. Pours black with a earthy red hue.
Aroma. quite a complex nose, of currant, bubblegum, cinnamon, a general spiciness and caramelized/burnt toffee.
Taste. On entry i get a very malt forward beer, consisting of deep and dark fruit flavours such as cherries, currants and a slight sourness.
Overall. quite a decadent and very hard for me to describe, as ive tested very few of its kind. Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2015
